As I said in my last post Fancy Dress on a Pony, I took loads of pictures at the Sennybridge Agricultural Show on the 5th of September, so I thought I’d put up random selection of them today.

I will be sending a link to these posts to the Committee, so I hope if you were there, you get a chance to see them! I can’t identify anyone in them and nor am I sure who won the rosettes – if anyone would like to let me know I will add the names to the photo captions.
To see the captions just hover over the pictures or to see the full sized photo click on them and they will turn into a slide show.

I also have another set of photos of the amazing display of the history of tractors – which I will sort out and put up in another post.
At one time I was “official photographer” for my local agricultural show, in the Swansea Valley – at one time it was a thriving show – I was really sad to see that it is no longer going.
Someone has tried to put on a substitute recently, but when I popped in to see it last summer, there were no animals around, just a small mix of stalls – still I hope they keep going!
This is a small selection from photographs I took at various agricultural shows around Wales – including the Royal Welsh. Most of these are people shots, or things I found amusing.
These are all scans of prints. I have loads more on negatives, not digital. Been thinking of buying one of those scanners that convert negatives to digital…..hmmm!
